[image]CRISM
Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is an overachiever! About six months into its science-gathering phase and the orbiter has already returned 11 Terabits of data - that's enough to fill over 2,000 CDs! The total goal for the mission lifetime is 34 Terabits. Among the impressive data are images from the orbiter's Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) instrument. With CRISM, the science team intends to investigate the entire red planet in spectral mode at a resolution of 200 meters...

[image]CRISM Mulitspectral Map of Eastern Candor Chasma - NASA/JPL/JHUAPL/Brown University
This map of Eastern Candor Chasma, one of the deep valleys in Valles Marineris, was assembled from images taken by the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) over the first five months of orbital operations around Mars. Besides obtaining high spatial resolution targeted observations, CRISM is also compiling a global map at approximately 200 meters (660 feet) per pixel. That map is taken in 72 key wavelengths out of CRISM's total of 545, which are most sensitive to the prese...

[image]Smooth Sailing
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter began its cruise phase and successfully completed the first two vital tasks. The word cruise is a deceptive one, at least in the context of navigating spacecraft. During cruise, or the period after launch and before the final approach to Mars, the spacecraft and its support team are very busy. This is no time to lounge with a frosty tropical drink or strike up a conga line around the pool deck...

[image]The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter "Follow the Water" theme
This artist's concept represents the "Follow the Water" theme of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission (MRO). MRO's science instruments monitor the present water cycle in the Mars atmosphere and the associated deposition and sublimation of water ice on the surface, while probing the subsurface to see how deep the water ice reservoir detected by Mars Odyssey extends. At the same time, MRO will search for surface features and minerals (e.g., carbonates and sulfates) that record the extended pres...

[image]Layered Rocks Near Mawrth Vallis - NASA/JPL/MSSS
Mawrth Vallis is one of the oldest valleys on Mars. It was formed in and subsequently covered by layered rocks, from beneath which it is now being exhumed. The rocks surrounding the valley have been observed by the Omega spectrometer aboard the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft, which found them to include minerals with water bound within their structure. Thus, the Mawrth Vallis region is of keen interest to the team using the mineral-mapping Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrom...
